How to remove pictures embedded into word document


Adekoya Rasak
 

Hello All,

I am trying to edit a word document. It has many pictures embedded
into it with words on same document. How can I remove such pictures?
I use word 2016 and jaws 18.

Thank you.

Rasak,

          This can be done with the Find and Replace command, which you can open with CTRL+H.

          In the find field enter "^g" (a caret or circumflex, followed immediately by g without the quotes) and in the replace field enter nothing, since you're trying to remove the graphics.  The carat G represents any graphic (image) in the document.

          Hit ALT+A to activate the Replace All button and this should have removed all images in the file, leaving only text.  Then activate the close button on the Find and Replace dialog.

This may be a crazy question, but how do you enter a “caret”, and/or a circumflex?

Sorry I do not have an example to test, but
I think it is control shift O to list the Pictures/objects, then press enter on them to select, then delete, or press applications key to resize etc. Or possibly delete was in the context menu as well.
Cheers

The caret/circumflex is SHIFT+6 on the regular keyboard of every computer keyboard I've used since, well, forever.

Hey Brian.  I thought the shift of the #row 6 was called a “carrot”?  Do we have different names for the same key stroke?  tia

 

Have a great day!

Bob, 

          The spelling is caret for the character, not carrot (like the vegetable), although they are homonyms.   It is also known as the circumflex and, less frequently, as the chevron.

          Not all that much different than '*' being called the asterisk or the star or, these days, the '#' going from being known as the pound sign or number sign to the hashtag character.
